“I just don’t have the willpower” is a familiar refrain for people trying to lose weight. This webinar will address the role of psychologists in training “willpower” and other cognitive behavioral interventions for obesity. An overview of the obesity epidemic and assessing patients for behavioral weight management will be given, along with discussion about how psychologists are important providers in the treatment of obesity. Participants will also have a chance to learn about APA’s Public Education Campaign and their efforts to educate the public about the psychology of obesity. More information is available here and a recording will be available at a later date.
